CSEA Civil Service Test Preparation BookletsThe CSEA WORK Institute offers 28 test preparation booklets that are designed to help individuals prepare to take state and local government civil service exams. Booklet titles correspond with topics listed on civil service exam announcements under the heading "Subject of Written Examination."
Not sure which booklets you'll need?
We cannot take phone orders because we cannot accept payment via credit or debit cards over the phone for booklets and videos. If you would like to order using a credit or debit card, please do so at our bookstore (link above). Please be aware that prices on the order form reflect pricing when paying by check or money order.

Try to match the topics you see on your announcement to the titles of our test prep books.
Your exam announcement must be for your position only or for your position and others in the same series (e.g., the state Principal Clerical Series) in order to have a Subject of Exam section.
